Kizhi treatment is one of the most effective therapies in Ayurveda. It is used for the treatment of several common and chronic ailments and is basically a part of Panchakarma. Kizhi ayurveda treatment is a complete healing therapy that purifies and rejuvenates the body, mind, and soul.

In Kizhi ayurveda treatment massage, heated herbs and medicinal oils are tied in cloth bags first and kept in the area that is to be treated. After that, a specific gentle massage with the help of fingers, a heel of the hand or palm is provided to the patient. The bags are then placed with varying degrees of pressure on different body parts, with a special focus on areas where the marma – or nerve points – are located.
